The Mad Cutter

Yes, I've become a metal cutting madwoman.  The more I go through my stash of metal, the more I envision, design, and, create.

Urns have been added to my list of offerings.

Yes, I draw these out, and, cut them by hand.

This next one is one of my favorites.  I made it smaller, and, slender.

I gave it a weathered rusty white finish, and, made it into a magnet.

After I made the urn magnet, I decided to create smaller versions of my shields, and, do the same with them.

I'm very appreciative for my Etsy customers.  In addition to my regular sales, I'm also working on quite a few custom orders.

I don't see my metal cuttings days ending right now.  I have other designs in the works.  I'll share soon.

The "Paris" lettering can be found on The Graphics Fairy website.

  2. Please keep up with the metal cutting. You are such a tremendous artist and have such vision! Who'd have thought old metal could be made so beautiful?

  3. It may be cold in Illinois, but you are certainly hot as a pistol with your metal work. Great stuff, as usual.

  4. Everything you make is just so cool and beautiful and these are no exception!

  5. These are gorgeous and it's no wonder you've been busy with them and your shields. Love the patina!

  6. You are an absolutely amazing artist.

    I would love to just sit and watch you create, seriously and just pick your brain and be awed by your many talents.

    And I would bring you tea and scones and we'd discuss how life truly is a long song. ♥
